Upon arrival, there was no one at the ranger station. We parked at the gate and Don had to exit the vehicle and walk over to the welcome center inorder to check-in.

Bathrooms are good. Transfer seat and hand held shower wands provided.

There are 174 sites. Only 6 are designated for the handicapped.

The only handicap sites are  on the same level with the facilities. They are sites #1 through #6. If one is open when you get there, don't go looking for another spot, just grab it. Otherwise you're looking at a lot of hills.  There was a handicap spot open when we got there, but wanted to explore other spots. When we saw all the hills, we went back. By the time we got back, that spot was taken. Lesson learned.

If you're not lucky enough to get into one of the 6 handicap spots, plan on having to use a motor vehicle to get to the facilities.

Free WiFi is available throughout the park. It's that crappy Jabba Communications, but at least you don't have to pay for it like they make you do at Thunderbird.

None of the rentals are wheelchair accessible.
